Monstress #1 - Sana Takeda, Marjorie M. Liu Monstress #2 - Marjorie M. Liu, Sana Takeda

I'm in love with this series. It makes my feminist heart flutter wildly. 

 

This is a female dominated world that is far from Utopian. There are weird animal/human hybrids. There is an evil religious organization with Inquisitrixes. The protagonist is not a nice girl or a sweet girl. Her strength is neither derived from some "uniquely feminine" quality nor would it really be called "masculine". She just is what she is and feels power in that. It brilliant and beautiful. The art is amazing. The world is intriguing. I can't wait to devour the rest of the series. 

 

But I will wait because the series is only on #6. It won't be patiently, though.
